The Castle Menu offers a”brasserie” style of cuisine, a lighter and less formal style of cooking from our Samuel’s Restaurant Dinner Menu. The Castle Menu changes regularly in accordance with the ingredients available and passing of the seasons, and is available for lunch or dinner every day of the week.
This can be served in the Bar or on the Terrace (in summer months), in the Drawing Room or Private Sitting Room, or as Room Service.

Thank goodness the sun has now come out and we seem to have finally put winter behind us! The Parkland has burst into bloom with clouds of blossom and a colourful carpet of daffodils and bluebells around the trees.
The Walled Garden is also getting going, with bright tulips swaying in the breeze and home grown asparagus bursting forth. Asparagus is at its most delicious when eaten closest to home, so dishes featuring home-grown asparagus are now on all our menus, including the bar and lounge. The garden furniture is out and soon it will be time for afternoon teas on the lawn and evening drinks on the terrace at sunset. English summertime at it’s best.
